Collection and recycling device for vegetable oil at restaurants

We will invent a device capable of filtering particulates from used cooking oil, removing residual water and pumping the oil, even when it is hot, into a metal storage container. It can be used at restaurants, schools, hospitals, and other places that use vegetable oil deep fryers.  Both the growing demand for biodiesel, which currently costs less than one dollar per gallon to produce, and the need for businesses to reduce operating costs are satisfied by this invention.
